Eco Concrete Etcher Sample



Eco Concrete Etcher is a water-based non-hazardous, non-corrosive, biodegradable, odorless, VOC free, non-flammable concrete etching and cleaning solution. This advanced formula incorporates a blend of organic chemicals and surfactants for the most effective concrete etching solution available. It does not contain phosphoric or hydrochloric (muriatic) acids which present health and environmental risks including toxic fumes and corrosive run-off.

Eco Concrete Etcher is the preferred eco-friendly and user friendly etching alternative for interior or exterior concrete preparation. It opens the pores on hard-troweled or non porous concrete allowing better adhesion prior to application of any of our Concrete Sealers.

Eco Concrete Etcher is also ideal for cleaning, degreasing and acid etching concrete floors, walls, basements, garages, factories, warehouses, driveways, swimming pools, patios, and containment areas prior to coating, staining or sealing. It can be used on concrete, masonry, concrete block, brick, mortar and grout to properly prepare substrates for optimum penetration and adhesion of stains, paints and industrial sealers. It also removes dirt, clay, mortar deposits, rust and efflorescence and reduces the pH of new concrete which can burn off sealers.

Eco Concrete Etcher is supplied as a ready to use etcher which covers 100 to 200 sf/gal depending on the concrete porosity. Apply with a pump up sprayer or watering can and scrub the surface with a stiff brush for 15 minutes without allowing the etcher to dry out. Rinsing thoroughly with water 2 or 3 times to neutralize the etching action.

In the video below an egg is lowered into the Eco Concrete Etcher solution and it can be seen that almost instantaneously the product begins to dissolve the calcium based shell of the egg. The product uses the same kind of reaction to react with the alkaline concrete to open up the pores to make it more absorbent for sealer application.
